Greek private sector calls Dec 15 anti-austerity strike

ATHENS, Oct 14 (Reuters) - Greece’s main private sector union called a 24-hour strike against austerity for Dec. 15 to demand the government protects jobs and gives back pension benefits scrapped under an EU/IMF bailout plan.

“GSEE calls on all citizens to mobilise to defend basic and fundamental rights,” the union, which represents about 2 million workers, said in a statement. “We send a message to all that workers have reached their tolerance limits and will not accept new cuts.” (Reporting by Ingrid Melander; Editing by Dina Kyriakidou)
